The history of Valdaracete, a dry area in which the fields of cereals, vines and olive trees predominate, is intimately united to the reconquest after the arrival in the zone, in 1170, of the Military Order of Santiago.
Within its old town, the Public Schools are reminiscent of the railway constructions of the early twentieth century. The market square draws a picturesque corner made up of traditional Castilian houses. In the Plaza de la Constitución or the Town Hall rises the Consistorial House, built in the traditional style with arches and balcony. Around it we find typical whitewashed houses with balconies in wrought iron and ceramic floors.
Our visit to the Church of San Juan Bautista culminates, located in a stop from which dominates all Valdaracete. It is a Renaissance church of the late sixteenth century, with a single nave, a Latin cross with a tower and bell tower, whose construction is attributed to Juan de Herrera, architect of the monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial.
On the outskirts of the town, there is the hermitage of the Virgen de la Pera inside which the patron saint of the municipality is guarded.
